Transition ? 

The word just means what the Primary School and the Comprehensive School can do to help you to move from one school to the other and what you can do to make sure that you keep doing well in school.


What do I do?

All you need to do is keep trying to do your best.

Every pupil has lots of different talents.

We will help you along the way, and you can check progress with your parents and your form tutor using your Passport.

We have a ceremony in January to celebrate all these achievements.


What if I am worried?

Everyone worries about moving schools, even if they tell you they don't!

But all of our Year 7s are very happy and some of them will visit so you can ask them questions that you don't want to ask your teachers or parents.

We do lots of things to help you to get ready; we change things to make them better every year, and listen to what the Year 6 and 7 pupils tell us.


Our main Primary Schools are:

Rhws, St Athan, Wick, St Illtyd, Ysgol Y Ddraig.

Llantwit Major School works with your Primary Schools a lot so that the pupils and teachers know each other well.

 Parent and Pupil Voice

Here at Llantwit Comprehensive we value the opinions of our shareholders and we are constantly working closely with parents and pupils in order to continue improving our transition programme. Each year we carry out surveys in order to identify our strengths and any weaknesses so that we can continue to develop and improve transition.


In 2016-17, 100% of our Year 7 parents ‘strongly agreed’ or ‘agreed’ with the statement:

“My child moved from Year 6 to Year 7 smoothly .”



In 2016-17, 100% of our Year 7 parents ‘strongly agreed’ or ‘agreed’ with the statement:

“My child enjoyed the transition days in Year 5 and Year 6 .”
